So I’m a lifeguard and the amount of people that leave their small children (like 5 and under) in the beach areas (where the water starts from nothing then gets gradually deeper) of the pool unattended. And whenever I have to tell them that they need to be with their kids, they always ask stuff like “why? Isnt that why you’re here?” Like????? No bitch????? I’m here to watch everyone in this pool, not babysit your damn kids.
On a different occasion, this lady left her toddler (like a year and half old, could barely sit up by its self) and she walked away from her kid, sat down, and TOOK OUT A BOTTLE OF VODKA. The other guards saw it and our manager came out and told her that alcohol isn’t allowed inside the facility and that she needed to be with her child at all times. She became all angry and belligerent and then said that she was going to just leave and drive home. We didnt let her of course and had to call a cab once she calmed down but like??? What the fuck???? Does the safety and wellbeing of your child mean nothing to you???
